Lemon Brownies

I LOVE lemons and all things lemon.....

My sister made these for us while we were in Utah.  They are SO yummy!!  Her and her kids came to visit us last week and I told her that we needed to make them she did.  She found the recipe here at Rita's Recipes.

Lemon Brownies


3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, soft
2 eggs
juice from 1/2 lemon (~1T)
zest from 1/2 lemon (~1t)

Directions:  Preheat oven to 350.  Combine the flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl.  Mix in the softened butter.  In another bowl whisk the eggs with the lemon juice and zest.  Add to the larger bowl and mix well.    Pour into prepared 8X8 brownie pan.  Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.  You can double the recipe and bake in a 9X13 pan for 30 minutes.  Remove and let cool, then glaze.

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
additional lemon zest

stir together.
